Parliamentary Committee decides to lift Immunity of CHP, Good Party deputies
A parliamentary committee on Thursday decided to lift the immunity of CHP (Republican People's Party) deputy Ali Mahir Basarir and Good Party deputy Lutfu Turkkan.
Turkkan's public insult of the relative of a soldier killed in Bingol and Basarir's reaction to the judge after the dismissal of Yalova Mayor Vefa Salman were cited as reasons for lifting the immunity.
The decision reports of the Joint Commission on the waiver of immunity shall be placed directly on the agenda of the General Assembly. The General Assembly may decide to waive immunity by adopting the report, or it may decide to postpone the procedure to the end of the term by rejecting the report.
The vote in the General Assembly shall be taken separately for each deputy.
When a deputy's immunity is waived, his deputy activity does not cease, but continues. The deputy receives his salary and enjoys other social rights, and if he is not arrested, he can come to Parliament and participate in legislative work.
